Your Monday Pep Talk!

You can do this, Big People!  You're in charge!
Hiya, Big People!  Happy Monday!

Well, ya know, I get it that you don't really like Mondays, Friends.  Mondays can jolt ya from the pleasantude of a wonderful weekend.  But let's put a different frame on this thing. 

Mondays are the gateway to a brand new week.  It's an opportunity for excellence, if you think about it, Friends! 

You know, another word for "Big" is "Large," and "large" rhymes with "in-charge."  So that means that you're Large and In-Charge, Big People! 

You are Large and In-Charge, Friends!  And today is Just Monday!

You've got this, Big People!  Go out this week and take this opportunity to be excellent!  Muah!

The Fung Shui of Play!

The chi flows much more freely through my swingset now!
Hiya, Big People!  How are you this super-Sunday?  I'm doin' GREAT! 

Well, ya know, yesterday, I got to lookin' at my dang ol' swingset, and decided it could use a change of positioning.  It's been in the same spot in the yard since I was three years old. 

Not that there's anything wrong with that or anything.  I mean, I enjoyed lookin' out over the Township Building when I'd swing.  Nothin' wrong with that!

But I felt as though the energy of the universe could flow better through my swingset, and by extension, through me as I play on my swingset, so when Daddy moved the swingset yesterday so it could be mowed around, I seized the opportunity to change things the heck right up!

I liked the way the swingset was aligned with the house, as it sat out of the way of the lawn-mower.  Before, it was situated so I could face either west or east as I was on the swing, harnessing the power of the sunrise and sunset.  However, now I can swing with the power of the north or south winds.  Just that little change makes me feel even more powerful as I play. 

I'm not sayin' I won't ever move my swingset back to facing east and west, but for right now, I'm enjoyin' a different Fung Shui of Play!

So if you're ever feelin' like you're stuck in a rut, just change things up a little bit!  You'll be glad ya did!

I love ya lots, Friends!  I'll see ya tomorrow!  Muah!

I Am A Kindergartener-in-Waiting!

Kindergartener-in-Waiting, right here!
Hiya, Big People!  Happy Saturday to you!

Well, ya know, Thursday morning, I watched as the big yella school-bus made its stop at the bus-stop in town, and then I watched as it pulled away, and I realized that the next morning that big yella school-bus rolls up into the Bing, that'll be MY school-bus!

I'm excited, Friends.  I really am.  There's gonna be classrooms fulla kids for me to make friends with.  There are miles of book-shelves.  Tubs of clay.  A whole ROOM dedicated to art, and another to musics.

I know I'm gonna have my share of ups and downs, but so long as my overall trend is up, it's all gonna be good.  I am READY for school!

This year has been a whole big year of changes, Big People.  There've been a lot of things that I was used to seein' and bein' and doin' and knowin', my whole entire life, and it's all different.  The first halfa Twenty-Seventeen hasn't all been fun and games for me, you know, Friends.  There's been a lotta fun, don't get me wrong, but I've had my moments where I've thought I'd never not cry again.

That's how I know I'm really, really ready to make the transition from Preschooler to Kindergartener-in-Waiting, Friends.  Since 2017 started, I've done a lot of things I thought I'd never be able to do.  I'm older, wiser, maybe not as completely happy as I usedta be, but I'm resilient.  This summer's gonna be an adventure.  Kindergarten's gonna be an adventure.

And I'm ready!

Happy National Donut Day!

It's the most wonderful day of the first week of June!
Hiya, Big People!  Happy Friday, and HAPPY DANG OL' DONUT DAY!!!

As you know, donuts are a big part of my life.  Donuts and I go WAY BACK, and I am so happy that there's a whole day that honors the donut and Donutkind!

I won't keep ya long on a wondrous day such as this, Friends.  You need to get to a donut place, get yourself a boxa donuts, a big cuppa beverage, and celebrate dang ol' National Donut Day!  Get enough to share with your friends!

Flip That Calendar!

It's New Month!  How about that?! 
Hiya, Big People!  Happy Thursday to you!

Well, ya know, it's the first of June today, and that means that if ya didn't get to flippin' your calendar over to New Month as part of your New Month's Eve festivities last night, you better get crackalackin' on changin' your calendars from May to June today.

Why?  Because June is a busy month, if you're anything like me.  It's fulla parties, trips, appointments, and other special things.  You need to keep on toppa all that, and there's no better way than by consulting your calendar.

Maybe you have your calendar on your mobile telephone, and that's great!  That means the phone flipped your calendar for you! 

In any case, it's now a brand new month, like a piece of blank paper, just waitin' to be drawn all over!  Make your picture for June 2017 pretty and full! 

I love ya lots, and I'll be seein' ya tomorrow!  Muah!

Happy New Month's Eve!

Just think of me as the Make Your Holiday Girl!
Hiya, Big People!  Happy Wednesday to you!

Well, ya know, we've come to the end of another month, haven't we?  And as we're sittin' here on this Wednesday with Memorial Day in our rear-view mirror and utterly surrounded by no holiday to celebrate today, I've got one for ya!

It's New Month's Eve!  How about that?!

The ways we should celebrate New Month's Eve are by eatin' delicious foods, maybe havin' a balloon-drop with confetti, and definitely a ceremonial Flippin' of the Calendar to Next Month, mmmkay?!

Since I'm a Little Kid, I'm all about celebratin' the little holidays, even if I've gotta make 'em up myself! 

I love ya lots, Big People!  I'll see ya tomorrow!  Muah!

I Like My Marshmellas Rare!

I like my roasted marshmellas without any pesky golden-brownness!
Hiya, Big People!  Happy Tuesday to you!

Well, ya know, it was a wonderful, long weekend.  I loved every minute of it! 

One of the most notable things about this weekend is that for the first time ever in my life is that I got to roast marshmellas all by myself, with no grown-up intervention.  I had my own stick, and my own spot at the fire, and I learned something about myself.

I learned that I really like my roasted marshmellas rare.  I stick 'em in the fire just long enough to heat 'em up, but not to impart any of that pesky golden-brownness or bubbles or caramelization the Grownups like. I wouldn't have known this, if the Big People in my life were still cookin' my marshmellas for me!

So even though I'm talkin' about marshmellas today, I feel like a Really Big Cheese, now that I know I like my roasted marshmellas rare!

Hey.  I'll see ya tomorrow, Big People!  I love ya lots!  Muah!
